Get your calendars out and mark this down stat: Starting on Saturday, October 3, Bernie Robbins Jewelers will be having a massive moving sale at their Radnor and Newtown locations, and they’re offering some amazing deals on engagement rings and bridal jewelry.
When we write the honeymoon features for each of our print issues, we always include a section that details the best time of year to travel to that particular location. Oftentimes we mention the destination’s peak tourist season (these months usually have the nicest weather), that way you’ll know right off the bat if it’s a possibility for your post-nuptial getaway.
But, truth be told, there are plenty of reasons to book your trip during a destination’s off-season as well: Less crowds and lower prices are just a few of the perks (plus, off-peak doesn’t always mean bad weather). It’s just a matter of doing your research, and finding the places that are worthy of an off-season visit.
“When it’s The One, you’ll know it.” We hear that line all the time when a bride-to-be is shopping for her wedding dress. And, in many cases, that sentiment rings true—we’ve all seen the episodes of Say Yes to the Dress where the bride knows she’s found the winning gown the instant she puts it on (and then it’s confirmed by cheers and tears from her entourage).
On the other hand, there are plenty of brides who don’t experience that immediate “this is it” reaction—not every girl bursts into tears the second she finds her wedding gown—and that can cause a lot of stress and uncertainty when it comes to actually purchasing the dress.
It’s officially starting to feel like autumn, which means our days are spent dreaming about fall foliage, cozy fabrics and jewel toned color palettes—and how you can incorporate all of those things into your Big Day.
I’ve told you before how fall is my favorite time of year to celebrate a wedding, but it’s also the perfect season to showcase the color scheme I love most: berry tones.
It goes without saying that your wedding vendors play a huge role in your Big Day—they’re responsible for bringing your entire vision to life, so it’s important that you’re compatible with them and on the same page throughout the entire planning process.
Choosing your florist, photographer and caterer is always an exciting wedding to-do, but unfortunately vendor relationships don’t always work out as planned: Whether you’re dealing with an unresponsive vendor or your styles just don’t mesh as well as you expected, it can be a challenging (and stressful) experience.
We’ve talked quite a bit on here about about how to make the most of your wedding registry, and what it boils down to is the idea that your wish list should be filled with the items that make the most sense for your lifestyle. Traditional registries (where blenders and fine china were standard) are a thing of the past—now it’s all about choosing gifts that you’ll get the most use out of, even if that means cash or contributions to your honeymoon.
I think it’s safe to say that Juba Lee Young and Amanda Preslar stole the show on Monday night’s episode of The Voice: Not only did the singing duo from Tulsa land a spot on Team Pharrell, but they also made history with the show’s first-ever on-stage proposal.
After getting two chairs to turn during their Blind Audition, the couple was asked how long they’ve been singing together (18 months) and whether or not they were married (not yet). Juba then dropped to one knee, pulled a ring from his pocket and asked a very surprised Amanda to marry him. Her reaction—plus the reactions of the couple’s families and the unsuspecting coaches—is so so sweet. Behold:
